Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Nilang de Lalique c1995

Nilang by Lalique: launched in 1995. Created by Gerard Anthony. The name refers to Nilang Lake in India.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as an aqua-oriental-lotus fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: water jasmine, freesia, water lily and narcissus
  • Middle notes: blueberry and lotus
  • Base notes: sandalwood, amber, musk, vanilla and praline


Some people may be confused about what is what when it comes to the Nilang perfumes. So I created a quick little guide here for the original vintage bottles:

  • Parfum Mini (golden ring on collar/white transparent cap)
  • 50ml Eau de Parfum (dark yellow cap)
  • 100ml Eau de Parfum (purple cap)

Claire de Nilang:

In 1997, Claire de Nilang was introduced as a floral flanker scent to the original. Pure with hints of sharp green petals (as the stopper), freesia and hibiscus, and delicious, with a candied kumquat coulis.
  • Top notes: coriander leaf, freesia and bergamot
  • Middle notes: acacia, kumquat, pink pepper and cassia buds
  • Base notes: musk, sandalwood, vanilla and hibiscus

Fate of the Fragrance:

Nilang was discontinued, but reformulated as a fruity floral fragrance for women and relaunched in new packaging in 2011.
